Auvik Networks recently released its 2021 Network Field Report which surveyed IT pros across North America and looks at how in-house IT admins manage their networks and the current state of network management practices. Steve Petryschuk joins me on the podcast to share insights from the survey.
I learn how there appears to be high network confidence with low network knowledge in some organizations. For example, more than half of IT pros have incomplete knowledge about how their networks are configured, yet 77% of these same people also report high or very high confidence in their networks.
We discuss how this could indicate a potential mismatch between perception and reality, with IT pros unaware of the weaknesses in their network management practices. I also learn how only 36% of organizations back up their network device configurations daily or weekly, despite additional data showing that configuration changes are frequent.
